@sparkly. The multiple acquisitions also concern me. I hope it doesn't become a habit, I'd like to see organic growth.
Concentrated ownership always a concern, looking forward to dilution of this in the coming years like happened in scan and ARM. It's important

True re: dilution but any shareholding beyond 30% still means effectively he controls the firm.

I think the acquisitions, as happened with ScanGroup, build capacity and broader market penetration. That said, if an acquisition goes wrong it will hurt the firm which pays out cash for these firms/brands.

Another worry in any acquisition is the cost of taking on the employees of the acquired firm.
What's the culture?
What's the pay packet?
Where's the loyalty?
What's the effect on EXISTING employees?
